The Pennsylvania SPCA, 350 E. Erie Ave., is offering fee-waived adoptions on most animals on Saturday, Aug. 24, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the 2nd Annual Peace & Love Summer Block Party! “The event is a way to highlight all of the services available to the public at the Pennsylvania SPCA while finding new homes for the wonderful pets in our shelter,” said PSPCA spokeswoman Wendy Marano. The following deals and promotions will be offered:

PSPCA workers were back in Bustleton on Monday to search for cats believed to be hiding in a decrepit, vermin-infested home.
— A Howell Street woman was frantic when she couldn't locate her beloved miniature Chihuahua for days.
